How we can help
What we can do for healthcare providers.
Whether you want simple connectivity via the internet or need a more advanced connectivity method, both of which are available with additional security options, Cloud Gateway's SASE platform has the solution to your specific requirements.
SASE is a highly flexible solution which is tailored to bring together your site(s), cloud or on-premise environments. By introducing our Health & Social Care Network (HSCN) or migrating from N3 to HSCN, NHS Digital services are accessible from anywhere.
Cloud Gateway is proud to be a HSCN-compliant supplier that can securely route your traffic, with scalable bandwidth and additional security options according to your needs. All this, plus you won’t have to wait for unreasonable lead times or face any installation charges.
Connecting to the HSCN
What you need to connect
to the HSCN.
In order for Cloud Gateway to connect you to HSCN, you’ll need to sign up to the terms of the HSCN Connection Agreement.
Sign the HSCN Connection agreement
If you think you’ve signed the HSCN Connection Agreement (which replaced the NHS N3 network in 2018), search either using your organisation name or ODS code. If you don't know it, find it here.
Request an invitation if you haven’t received anything
If you haven't yet received an invitation to complete your Connection Agreement, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to their online portal.
Submit your agreement to NHS Digital
Once you have access to the NHS Digital online portal, sign your Connection Agreement and submit it to NHS Digital.
